Had the most amazing Shrimp Wrap here today! with walnuts, avocado, feta cheese wrapped in a spinach tortilla. It was glorious!

The food was really good. Waitresses make a Greek dance routine every hour during happy hours which is fun to watch so basically you get a dinner and a mini-show ))))... But service needs some improvement - rolling eyes and making faces doesn't feel like you welcomed there.

It was a beautiful November day. Mid 70's. We sat outside and enjoyed the weather, the interesting assorted colored hair on passersby, the Rolls Royce, and motorcycles. Very nice. We love Greek food. This was excellent. I ordered a veggie wrap with hummus and feta. Delicious. Companions had gyros that they enjoyed. Highly recommended.

We visited with a party of 6. We had the place to ourselves on a Tuesday night. Special requests were accommodated enthusiastically. The food was well done Greek tourista fare, nothing special. Prices a little high for what is essentially a chain. Outdoor table options ruined by the hookahs.

I say pleasant surprise only because I don't typically eat Greek food. I came with family and friends for a total of 12 and we all enjoyed it. Everyone loved their food but I had the Maui Maui and it was very very tasty. Alexandra was our server and she was very friendly and attentive. The decor is very nice... More

The food was just ok, nothing else. Food seemed to me regular, only with Greek names. I was just expecting more, maybe we just didnt try enough variety. Service just regular

We were so surprised when the waitresses lined up for their Zorba dance and even more so when the napkins started flying and dishes broke. Food was excellent as well. Friendly crew, would go again.

I live in the Tampa Bay area and have been to this restaurant many times. I am a local. I have tried many places and this is most definitely one of the better Mediterranean restaurants in town. Great variety of delicious foods! Best salads and the hummus is oh so yummy! Are you a vegan/vegetarian? They have great options! It's... More

I have had dinner and lunch and the food quality is GREAT - the amount is overwhelming so take this into consideration. watch for all the napkins on the floor. If there is a birthday or party they wait-staff will come to sing and there are napkins everywhere! It is fun, but the food makes it a must visit when... More
